We got there on a Monday and the owners and staff greated us, helped us to our room and invited us to have appetizers with the other guests at 6:30. We went for appetizers and stayed for dance lessons with Mario, drinks, food and live music! It was wonderful!!
The next day we woke up to the howler monkeys crossing the rope and hanging outside our window and eating breakfast with us. Best place to see monkeys! We walked to the beach and rented chairs from Mary's rentals where her brother served us drinks and spoted the local sloth in the tree to show us.
The staff were all extremely helpful with setting up tours and pointing us to good resturants and it wasn't the cookie cutter tours. They set us up with Freddy, a freelance national park guide that was the best guide I've had here so far and he also showed us the national park beaches where I will definitely soak up some rays the next time we come. They also suggested we use the intrabus to go from Manuel Antonio to La Fortuna.... Much cheaper and very easy to ride. Just a van with a few extra people.
Everything was wonderful at jungle beach and I miss it, like home, already!!
Thank you Barbara and the Jungle Beach staff!
